BMW Malaysia will be introducing the all-new 530e soon, as their official Facebook page has posted teasers of the new plug-in hybrid.
We managed to sample the all-new BMW 530e in Munich, giving us a good preview of the model that will eventually find its way here.
To recap, the BMW 530e expands on the 530i's four-cylinder B48 turbocharged petrol engine and is hooked up to a 113 hp and 250 Nm electric motor housed inside the ZF eight-speed automatic gearbox. Combined system output is 252 hp and 420 Nm of torque, enabling the BMW 530e to complete the century sprint in just 6.2 seconds.
Being a PHEV, the BMW 530e is able to cruise up to 48 km purely on electric power, though the actual range could be slightly less.
When the BMW 530e is launched, it will be competing against the Mercedes-Benz E350e and Volvo S90 T8.
